    go to your local shop adn ask them about it. they'll give you a form then you have to get a teacher to sign it. after that you'll be good to go. i was paid £20 a week but ask how many and how far it is you have to go and it might increase your pay

    you need their permission because you're underage. if they think it will afffect your school work, they won't sign n you cant do it.
    where ever they deliver newspapers, you can ask there

    They are usually found in local paper shops. Sometimes they have them in the window.

    Do you still do it ? And by local shops do you mean corner shops too ? And do you think most corner shops do them nowadays

    At 13, a paper round is really the only job you can get. Everywhere else will want you to be 15 at the very youngest.

    Go into your local post office, ask if they have any available work delivering papers. That's all you need to do.

    i did it from 13-15 years old but i stopped bc of gcses. literally ask all shops and corner shops that sell newspapers and youll probably find one. theyll help you from there
